Rant & Rave for Monday, May 12, 2014

- — Thanks to Vicky, the manager at the Flash Foods on Gornto. I am 75 years old and she helped me take my purchases to my car. She also even buckled me up. She is a very special lady.

I think it’s about time that the City of Valdosta and the new fire chief realize that our firefighters deserve a raise. They’ve gone so long without one, it’s not right. Especially since smaller towns make more than our guys here. The cost of living and gas is way up and it’s only fair and time now for them to get one. Step up, City of Valdosta, and don’t say, well, now it’s time to cut jobs out since someone thinks they deserve a raise.

Instead of harping on all the authorized citizens carrying guns, what about all those criminals carrying weapons and committing violent acts ? You seem to be silent on that one.

A big Rave to Darren and Amy at The Pool Store They always take the best care of their customers! They go above and beyond in customer service and are good people!

Each day on North Valdosta Road, I see a very aggressive driver in a truck with a ... church decal on it. I'm hoping he bought the truck with the decal already on it instead of being a church member. No wonder non-Christians think they don't need Christ. I mean if a Christian acts like that on a daily basis ...

The Ranter is absolutely correct. The Confederate flag has nothing to do with racism. It’s just the racist groups that parade the Confederate flag that make it so.

To the residents of Trotters Ridge Circle who party and sunbathe on their front lawns you have a fenced backyard, show some respect.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!
